THE National Executive Council (NEC) of the ruling NRM party yesterday endorsed President Yoweri Museveni as its 2011 presidential candidate and resolved to canvass support for the party’s continued stay in power.

At the end of the three-day meeting at State House Entebbe, NEC, the party’s policy organ, also recommended that the national conference retains Museveni as the NRM chairman.

Sources, however, said when the resolution for the retention of Museveni as chairperson was being discussed, Dokolo MP Okot Ogong objected. The President then stepped aside to allow the delegates debate the matter freely. The meeting later rejected Ogong’s motion.

The National Executive Council is the second highest organ of the NRM. Its recommendations will feature at the delegates’ conference mid this year.
The members yesterday unanimously vowed to support the continued stay in power of the NRM to consolidate the achievements made.

They also agreed that NRM flag-bearers will be chosen using adult members’ suffrage and not electoral colleges, as was the procedure.

There will, however, be exceptions for the presidential candidate, MPs and local councillors for youth, workers and persons with disability.

The meeting also resolved that the party will work with independents and members of other political parties who wish to join the NRM.

“The independents and members from other parties shall execute memoranda of understanding with the NRM, committing them to remain in NRM during and after the national general elections.”
The delegates vowed to resolve internal conflicts and contradictions “through the appropriate organs to achieve cohesion and teamwork.”

It doesn't make sense at all, the same guy has been in

power for more than twenty years and is now on

the verge of running for re-election. This is plainly

pathetic, when is this guy going to step aside and let

others lead also? Is he the only person who can rule

Uganda?
